Condition: I would grade this banknote as very fine with all the details being still well preserved. The note has vertical folds, horizontal folds, and some general wrinkling. It is soiled but no large objectionable stains. The note has a few creases, roughness along the edges, and a couple of very short tears along the edges. The corners are intact but are rounded and have bumps. The note has no graffiti, no pinholes, no tears reaching the design, and no splits. A nice banknote worthy of a spot in your collection.
